Strike Team Assignment - West Fire: Coronado Engine 36 with four personnel was dispatched last week as part of a strike team assigned to the West Fire. The fire burned 504 acres in the area of Interstate 8 and Willows Road near the community of Alpine. The fire, which began at just after 11 a.m. on Friday, July 6, damaged or destroyed 56 structures. Engine 36, along with the other resources in their strike team, engaged in firefighting operations throughout the afternoon and into the evening of Friday, July 6, off Pine View Road. Coronado’s Battalion Chief Perry Peake is the leader for a different strike team. He arrived at 3:30 p.m. and also operated off Pine View. Coronado resources were committed to the incident overnight. They returned on Saturday, July 7. Firefighters reported battling the fire in high heat was difficult.

Navy Waterline Break: The Navy notified the City on Wednesday, July 11, of waterline break at 7 p.m. on Naval Air Station North Island. There was some overflow into the playground area of the Coronado Childcare Center at Sixth Street and Coronado Avenue, as well as some flow into the City’s storm drain system. There were no other issues on City property and no permanent damage. The City’s Storm Drain crews inspected the system that evening and will use a camera to view the affected line to ensure there was no excessive debris in the line from the waterline break flow. It is unknown what impacts were felt on Navy property.



Cora-Mart Update: An architect, working on behalf of the owner of the Cora-Mart building, has submitted an application for a “Determination of Historic Significance” with the City. The applicant will go before the Historic Resource Commission at a meeting on July 18 for a hearing to determine whether the building meets the criteria to be designated as a Historic Resource, in order to allow the architect to appropriately plan for future improvements at the site. It is unknown whether the owner plans to alter or demolish the building, which was built in 1938 as an A&P Food Store. In 1963, Cora-Mart began remodeling the building and opened it as Cora-Mart in 1965. It has been vacant since 1996 and will require extensive upgrades to be brought up to current City building codes.

Transbay Pump Station Project - Phase 1:  The contractor on the Transbay Pump Station project began night work this week and started replacing valves and piping on the suction side of the pumps at the Transbay Pump Station located at The Ferry Landing Marketplace. The work is taking place at night during pump station shut downs. This also minimizes inconvenience to the nearby businesses. Staff is coordinating the work with the Navy as it is required to perform a sewage hold to allow the system to be shut down. All work is expected to be completed by the end of July.
